Why should Canada get serious on outbound?

How do recruiting countries balance export and import education?  The drivers behind are different and respective staff often siloed.  English-speaking destinations have traditionally been slow to embrace non-award mobility for their domestic students, estimated at 11% participation in Canada currently.  In this session we will examine the cross-over mutual benefits of mounting a serious outbound effort, from the enrichment of student learning to a more balanced partnership position in key markets.  We will review the national outbound strategies for the UK, US, Australia, and New Zealand and discuss how a robust outbound agenda can enhance progress towards export targets.
